    Goat is very strong and has great tensile strength, It typically has a lot more grain to it as well. Lamb - it is lightweight and drapes well. It also shreds easily - one reason I personally never get lambskin anything. However, you can typically find it with a lot less grain, if you are looking for a smoother surface.

    Shreds as in holes from abrasion? I guess it's pretty risky to throw a bag shoulder strap over top of it.

    Lambskin dark wine 3-zip DR2. Ordered 9/3, received 9/28 (missed delivery on 9/26).

    By far the softest leather jacket I've ever handled. The picture captures the dark wine color very well.

    I'm 5'10, 175lbs, athletic build and the stock 48 fits me perfectly. Thanks Charly and Dan for answering all my questions, getting the sizing spot-on, and for the smoothest process from start to finish. These guys are the real deal.

    Lamb isn't a chump when it comes to abuse. Yes, if you run into a sharp object, it may nick or puncture the leather depending on the speed and angle the jacket comes in contact with the object as well as the sharpness of the object. But how often will you be prone to having sharp objects near you to stab you?

    In everyday life the lambskin will hold up fine. I've had multiple lambskin jackets and I don't take very good care of my clothing. I'll wear them out in rain, toss them on the floor or in the back of my trunk, and do whatever else I need to in my jacket. They have all held up perfectly fine.

    It depends on the thickness and the tannage, of course, it just happens to be a lot less durable - lower tensile strength, more prone to continue to tear along an existing tear - than horse, or steer, or even calf. Like @mrchariybrown says, it's unlikely to tear just from being worn out to town.

    Bathroom fit pics here - doesn't do this jacket justice. Can't layer anything besides a t-shirt right now, but I sized down a little to motivate me to cut.

    How does dark wine look IRL. Is it actually burgundy or more like brown with some red undertones?

    The inner pockets zippers are black (with plastic teeth) instead of the silver zippers as shown in the lamb DR 1 product pic.

    The silver ones were just for the samples.

    The black ones operate MUCH smoother and doesn't poke your chest :)

    Mine's a dark burgundy. The colors in the photo are very similar to how it looks IRL.

    Thank you. I'm on the wait list for a MA-1 in dark wine.
